Applies to Kaspersky Small Office Security 2 for Personal Computer

The Backup component in Kaspersky Small Office Security 2 for Personal Computer allows to quickly restore your data in case of a loss or erasing.

Data stored on a computer can be lost or damaged due to various issues, such as impact of a virus, information modification or deletion by another user, etc. To avoid losing important information, you should regularly back up data.

Backup copying creates backup copies of objects in a special storage on the selected device. Backup storage is a specially assigned area of disk space or a data storage media.

When creating a storage area, the user:

  • selects the data medium, 
  • specifies the name of the new storage area, 
  • specifies the settings for storing backup copies, 
  • may also password-protect stored data against unauthorized access.

One and the same backup task can be started manually or by schedule repeatedly.

You can restore a required version of saved file. Once the necessity of restoring data from backup copies arises, the restoring procedure gets started, or the Kaspersky Restore Utility recovery tool is used. Files may be restored from backup copies either into their initial location, or into any available folder.

All events related to backup are recorded into the report.
